The issues of pathogenesis of cryptosporidiosis in pigs are studied. The cryptosporidiosis infection at experimental and spontaneous infection may lead to significant morphological changes in the pigs body: the number of leukocytes is increased, hemoglobin concentration and the number of erythrocytes are decreased, the blood sedimentation rate (ESR) varies from 1,9 to 2,7 mm/h. The protein composition of blood serum is marked by decrease in total amount of protein as well as a gradual fall of albumin and gammaglobulin levels. The activity of alkaline and acid phosphatase is elevated which proves the metabolic activity pointing at the body intoxication. Significant changes in redox processes are being observed. Blood sugar is going down and blood pyroracemic acid is increasing which testifies to disorders of carbohydrate metabolism.

Keywords: pigs, cryptosporidiosis, biochemistry, oocysts, blood, serum, Mordovia, pollution, environment.
